How’s that for title alliteration!
In a few past posts, I’ve referred to Lorraine Bracco as a former Sneden’s Landing resident. Truth be told, I could never find any record of her home having actually been sold. And now, thanks to a reference in the NY Post’s real-estate column, I see that she never did manage to move it. As Branden Keil wrote, the Sopranos star had recently been trying to sell her Long Island home in Bridgehampton, too, but after getting a couple offers she changed her mind.
Instead, she’ll concentrate on selling her quiet, three-bedroom Hudson River-fronting home in Sneden’s Landing for $3.2 million.
The actress and her former boyfriend Harvey Keitel bought the property, located 30 minutes from Manhattan, in 1989 from fellow thespian Ellen Burstyn.
Included in the private 2-acre woodland property, bordered by the Hudson River and a preserve, is a soothing waterfall. The listing broker is Mason Samett Associates in Tappan.</div></blockquote>
Sure enough, the home’s listing on Mason Samett shows plenty of wooded wonderland, along with pics of the 3-bedroom and 2.5-bath digs (more listing photos after the break). I especially like the Realtor’s description: “Entering the Landing you drive past a serendipitous collection of historic and contemporary homes set in well loved gardens in a picture pretty ‘Brigadoon-like setting.'”
But despite the prime riverfront setting, 2 acres, and waterfall, is it still worth $3.2 mil? Real estate blog Realstalker points out that the home was first put on the market in 2004 for $4,400,000, and the price has been whittled away ever since. The current price still sounds a bit steep for a dated looking 1960s home with only 3 bedrooms.
Whatever she gets, though, let’s just hope its enough for her to purchase the now-defunct North Salem Vineyard and start making her Bracco Wines stateside.
